Sponsor of the CONSTRUIRE-DECONSTRUIRE exhibition in aid of the Nantes University Hospital Endowment Fund

Published on 18 september 2023

The CONSTRUIRE - DÉCONSTRUIRE exhibition, organised by the Arty Show collective under the artistic direction of artist Sylvia Pires Da Rocha, will welcome 9 artists from very different backgrounds to the 400m2 of a former chocolate factory from 21 September to 21 October. It will offer the people of Nantes an immersive, artistic and supportive experience.

A long-standing player in business law in Nantes and the surrounding region, the law firm Cornet Vincent Ségurel is keen to lend its support to this project, which echoes the transformations in the city that it has been witnessing since 1972. "We work alongside many companies and local authorities in Loire-Atlantique that are helping to transform the city," explains Alexandre Cornet, partner at the firm and member of the Management Committee. "We also advise a large number of regional and national healthcare players on all their projects. Supporting this in situ exhibition in aid of the Nantes University Hospital therefore made perfect sense for our firm.

A free exhibition open to all

The theme CONSTRUIRE- {DÉ}CONSTRUIRE reveals the accidents of life that we can all go through and to which we must adapt: changing our representations, adapting our postures, confronting our resistance and our fears, which are sometimes difficult to get rid of in order to rebuild ourselves. The theme also echoes the destruction of the site, which will make way for new communal housing.

Improving the well-being of patients and carers through art

The CONSTRUIRE- DÉCONSTRUIRE exhibition, financed by corporate sponsors, is raising funds for the Nantes University Hospital Endowment Fund to create artistic spaces in the Nantes University Hospital to improve the stay of patients and the daily lives of the hospital's care staff. Thanks to this exhibition, the first fresco will be created in the pre-operation room of the medico-surgical technical platform of the Nantes CHU, and other spaces should follow. This artistic exhibition is helping to create a city that is vibrant, beautiful, inclusive and supportive.

Press conference: Thursday 21 September at 3pm, in the exhibition space (12 bis/ter rue de la tour d'auvergne in Nantes)

In the presence of Sylvia Pires Da Rocha, Artistic Director, Nathalie Lefebvre, Communications Officer for the Nantes University Hospital's Department of Attractiveness and Communications, and Caroline Wils, Founder of the Arty Show collective.

Conference "Does art transform our brain? Thursday 21 September 2023 from 4pm to 5pm

Hosted by Corinne HUCHET, University Professor at the Science and Technology Faculty of Nantes

University, physiologist by training and specialist in muscular function.

Corinne Huchet conducts fundamental and applied research into the development of innovative therapies for neuromuscular pathologies and the impact of age on muscles and human behaviour.

All of her teaching and research activities are aimed at questioning human physiology in its states of muscular and cerebral plasticity.

The Nantes CHU and the Arty Show collective are continuing their project - À la belle étoile - to create artistic spaces at the Nantes CHU to improve the stay of patients and the daily lives of nursing staff. More than 900 studies conducted by the WHO prove the health benefits of art. The "À la belle étoile" project, in partnership with Nantes University Hospital, involves creating permanent works of art painted directly on the walls of certain rooms, living areas and staff rest areas, to immerse patients, visitors and hospital staff in a sensitive and immersive artistic experience.

A crowdfunding campaign has been launched to support this project and create a number of spaces: https://www.helloasso.com/associations/fonds-de-dotation-du-chu-de-nantes/collectes/construire deconstruire
